A look at what ails the Brewers, breaking down their deadline deals and a chat with Doug Melvin about a memorable 2015 trade-deadline exchange.
Then, JR Radcliffe sits down with former Brewers general manager Doug Melvin to look back at a memorable 2015 trade deadline maneuver that sent Carlos Gomez and Mike Fiers to the Astros for Domingo Santana, Brett Phillips, Josh Hader and Adrian Houser.

Melvin talked about the zaniness of the moment and how his staff was quickly able to make lemonade out of a lemon.
